i am assuming for bass. I personally think cedar is best for bass but there are some other ones over there as well. Sheilds is decent but hasn't been good to me in recent years. But cedar is pretty consistent action and usually has some quality fish. i am sure a few other guys like katoguy will jump in and be more educated then me. i know a fun slp lake is Kelly dudely but not the best for a tourney probably. good luck

Whacker, what date will this be as there will be several contests in the area over the next few weeks.

I would guess you must have a small number of boats to be able to draw in the morning. Cedar, Shields, Mazazka, & Roberts all can be fun and large enough for 15 boats. I was on Cedar on the opener and today (pre-fishing). I was on Shields Sunday. (We did quite well on Shields - staying quiet about Cedar for now.)

If you want to go a little further, Tetonka/Sakatah, Jefferson/German, and Madison.

We'll have 35 boats on Cedar. The access only holds about 25 rigs, so I imagine the landing will be pretty full early by 5 a.m. or so.

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
